Share Prize 2013 | The Shortlist

This year over 250 artists submitted entries for the prize, now in its seventh season. Six works have been short-listed by the judges Jasmina Tesanovic, Bruce Sterling, Simone Arcagni and Luca Barbeni, and will be on show from 30th October to 9th November, 2013 at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Turin.

In a REAL TIME | REAL SPACE world, where data work in synergy with our location, filling it out in real time and multiplying the possible ways we can interact with the people around us and the physical world, what different forms can communication take?

The short-listed works are different spaces of representation of this non-stop stream, artistic practices that create critical visions of our space and time.
The boundaries between physical and symbolic space overlap, to explore a dimension in which aesthetics shapes communication modes.

28 by Mariano Equizzi invades the city with a cyber noir narrative.

Lauren McCarthy’s Social Turkers creates a control/communication space in real time where real life choices are influenced by the suggestions of the “crowd”.

Activists by Nika Oblak & Primoz Novak critically addresses the problem of delegation, bringing robots to replace humans in yet another context: the protest.

In the age of the “touch” dictatorship, Base 8 by Christine Sugrue creates an immaterial ecosystem that interacts with the spaces between our fingers and our hands.

Through the work Apotheosis of Glasgow High-Rises, Myriam Thyes visually inverts the space and the architectural movement of the town.

Nils Völker’s kinetic installation, ½ Eighty Eigh, is a non-stop stream, an analogue process presented in a “digital” matrix.
